A personal summer travelogue through non-personal memories, collective personal ideals, and personal collective collectives. An old, once-upon-a-time country, reborn and undone in the blink of an eye. A youthful, romantic drive through bleak squares, forgotten roads, and reconstructed dreams. A poem.
Kumjana Novakova

The anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide is attended by thousands every year. The talented Slovenian film maker, who was researching her debut feature film when she made this ingenious miniature, focuses on screens: umbrellas to screen people from the sun and other people’s gaze, and those of mobile phone cameras.

What happens when regimes change and countries fall apart? Under what circumstances do individuals lose their homeland? In this poignant investigative documentary we follow personal stories of people who lost their legal identity under a system in transition, struggling for something which ought to be obvious and normal. How can thousands of people in a newly formed state be administratively erased almost overnight? The Slovenian filmmaker Damjan Kozole, who directs both fiction and documentaries and became known particularly for his subtle contemporary story “Slovenian Girl”, manages with very simple cinematic means to keep the inner suspense in spite of his talking heads approach.

Playing with clichés, local stereotypes and fables on a certain region and nation, this lucidly conceptualized, refreshing and humorous film brings us to Slovenia, country of colorful costumes and strange traditions. It mocks locality as well as more global beliefs and values.
